In order to help out, here are the four cards that are mislabeled in the rulebook's Pre-Constructed Story Pack listings:


Story Pack #1 (Strange New World):

The rulebook lists 'Flock of Crows' - the card is 'Murder of Crows'.


Story Pack #2 (Witches & Women):

The rulebook lists 'Destruction of the Wicked Witch of the East' - the card is 'Destruction of the Wicked Witch of the West'. The card is in obvious error, as the picture is of the Witch of the East squashed by Dorothy's house.


Story Pack #4 (The Wizard):

The rulebook lists 'Oz * Faerie Queen' - the card is 'Oz * Angelic Lady'.


Finally, the card 'Back Home in Kansas' is not listed in any of the story packs. I threw it in Story Pack #4, but am not too sure.

Story Pack #2 (Witches & Women):
Rulebook typo 'Doroth - Kansas Farm Girl' - the card is correct.
Good Witch of the North not listed as historic, minor, or major


Story Pack #4 (The Wizard):
'Scarecrow - Petitioner' not listed as Major
2 copies of Cowardly Lion - Petitioner
2 copies of Dorothy - Petitioner


Honored Citizens: 3 of the 4 are not listed as minor or major. I am guessing that any historic character is neither minor or major

I think this is either the last card in #1 or the first in #2. When I opened the cards, it was placed at the front of #2

Thematically it would make sense for it to be the last card of a set and based on the other cards included, #4 would be a good choice.

Yeah, Pete - my Wife went through the packs and pack listings to separate them into their respective containers. After I posted this she mentioned that the Back Home in Kansas card was lumped with the first pack cards.

D'oh!!! Shazbot! Frak!! Frell!!!! (If you know all these references, you are an old geek like me. )


Issue #1: The rules were layed out far in advance of the finalization of the cards. It was pointed out to be that "Murder" was the correct term. I changed the card, but forgot the list in the rules.

Issue #2: My screw-up for not catching that. I'm going to have a bunch of corrected cards done up by Superior POD. People can contact me through here, or www. orionsbell.com, and I'll send out a free replacement of the card. The SPOD cards are near press quality.

Issue #3: A very old mistake I made back in 2008 when the card was created. The list is an out-put from my database. I long ago made the correction to the card, but not in the database. Sorry.

Issue #4: "Back Home in Kansas" was made for Series one originally, but I moved it to Series two, which was a better fit with the second book. I gave them a proper story pack breakdown, so I haven't any idea why it came in box 1 when it should be in box 2.

Again, damn, sh*t, f*ck!

Issue #1: My major mistake. As I stated for "Destruction of the Wicked Witch of the East" I will get replacements made from Superior POD and offer them here and on my web site - www.orionsbell.com

Issue #2: Again with the mis labeling? SPOD card will be avaiable for free, in about a month.

Issue #3: Yes, these cards appear in two different story packs. But the story packs are supposed to come in deck boxes. Are those not in the box game? If they are, why weren't they put into the deck boxes?

Issue #4: Read the rules. Historic is a different type (used mainly in series 2). Like Minor Characters, Historic can't be used to end the game.

BTW - The proper term is "Prime", not "Major".

Nice. thanks for the corrections. I look forward to getting the corrected cards. also, the card boxes did come in the game boxes, but they were not assembled and the cards came in 2 or 3 plastic wrappings. I constructed the card boxes myself and sorted the cards from the first set into their correct boxes. series two came the same way so we will have to wait till you get the story pack lists up for that one so we can organize them ourselves (which really isn't a big deal to me.) I thought the card boxes were a nice surprise!

I'm just waking up. (Nevada and I work from home so I stay up until ~2 AM, usually)

I'm going to set up something on my web site.

You can also email me your name and address through BGG private message.

It will take about 4-6 weeks for me to get the replacements.

I appreciate your willingness to help us out with stuff like this, Jim. Way above what you're responsible to do. I'll likely hit your website later and contact you that way once I'm in a better position to do so.

Sorry. My mistake. "Back Hom in Kansas" belongs in Story Pack 1.
